Then open this Federal Reserve newsletter, go to page 4 of 6, and
print the page. Print a copy for every bank you have tried to obtain
them at. Hand the page to the vault/merchant teller and/or the bank
manger. Have them contact their regional cash vault or armored carrier
and make sure they get their orders in.

Curiously the banks in my area cannot seem to get rid of them.  Everytime I
ask if they have anything interesting, hoping for Ikes or silver Kennedy's
they pull out those *** presidential slugs and want me to take them.

Yor solution is simple:

Get into your time machine and travel back into the last century.
About 30 years should do it, but 35 would be better. Then go into a
bank and buy all of the old fashioned gigantic, overly heavy, unable-
to-be-used-in-a-vending-machine Ikes you want. Then get back into the
time machine and go back another few years to find the silver
Kennedy's.

It's really quite simple.

All these documents and chain of command demands just to get a few dollar
coins or maybe a roll or two from a bank?  I'll bet their bank will love
them after the carrier drops off 50-100 thousand or so dollar coins and then
the one who raised hell asks for a roll, please.  I could see maybe going
through all this if the bank was lax in resolving my account problem, but
dollar coins?

Your postingindicates you did not read the simple instructions (or
could not comprehend them).

Dollar coins are available in boxes of 1000, not 50-100 thousand. Most
branches that get a box of 1000 find they are gone within 1 to 5 days.

I assume you're talking about the banks you frequent.  Each time I pick up
my new pres dollar roll at my BofA bank, I ask if they have many customers
asking for the coins and they say they don't get many requests.

I'll bet that if each teller had a little card in front of the window
that says "YES!  We have the presidential golden dollars," they would
move quite a few of them.

That is a brilliant, inexpensive, and likely-to-be highly effective
idea, Stefano.
A white card with an image of the Liberty side of the coin (not
wanting to
enter the "which side is the obverse" discussion/argument), with some
gold
edging around the perimeter, and voila!

Someone forgot that these things are ***fugly slugs with lousy edge
lettering.  I get a couple when they come out each time to send to
collectors overseas, but frankly I will not collect them and avoid using
them.

The mint provides them for free. They are called "tent cards" and look
like a tent. I have seen 2 banks out of a hundred that I've visited in
a 100 mile radius that had plenty of tent cards and other Presidential
Dollar Coin pamphlets. For the others, I give them one of my tent
cards and the tellers love them.

Plenty of freebies located here:

that says "YES!  We have the presidential golden dollars," they would

Maybe.  They should try it.   But is it really the bank's job to push dollar
coins?  The government that mints them certainly isn't doing it.  Maybe the
Mint should spend more of its TV commercial money on spots showing the new
dollar coins actually being USED, not being saved in special albums.  But
then the Mint does have an interest in people paying them for dollars rather
than pulling them from change.  And surely they could come up with something
more flattering to "numismatists" than that silly commercial they run
depicting coin collectors as oddballs rather than as numismatists.

At my bank, I notice that each bank teller has a tray on the counter with
rows of loose coins by denomination, which includes half dollars and golden
dollars, both of which are readily identifiable as such.  I don't know what
that tray is for because the tellers always seem to dispense change from a
cash drawer.  I have never asked, but I suspect they might also have a few
$2 bills within reach if one should ask.

It is funny you should bring this up.  As a mental exercise at times I
have thought how great it would be to go back and purchase certain
things that later became valuable.  The one sticking problem is what do
you use for currency?  You walk in to a bank to buy all those silver $1
coins using what is now almost a worthless $1.  What do you hand them?
A new bill?  Before your trip do you go out and buy as many FRN's from
the era you are traveling to?  Depending on the era, those FRN's might
cost you as much as the coins you are trying to purchase.

As for other commodities, taking $900 an ounce gold back to the 1920's
at $35 and ounce would not work.  Silver? Diamonds? The trick is to find
something that was more valuable in the past than it is now.  A rather
difficult proposition.  The only thing I have managed to come up with is
CPU chips and that will only get you to perhaps the 1980's.  Hoard up a
bunch of used Pentium chips that are almost worthless now and take them
back to a month after their release and sell them.  Do the same with
other variants and you can probably get a small fortune.

Fred, is there a similar "tent card" for Toms?  I'd give some to the two
banks in my area that provide Toms for me if there were.
